    p Children and adults alike had a spring in their step at the Baylys Beach Family Fun day as they enjoyed the summery weather and community spirit. Local organisations and agencies including the Department of Conservation, the Baylys Beach Society, Kaipara District and Northland Regional Council, and Nga Ripo came together to promote Conservation Week and build relationships at the family focussed event.

    Half-century of service celebratedu by Ayla Miller

    Fifty years of broken sleep, and dropping everything the moment the siren goes off hasnt been easy for Dargaville volunteer firefighter Gary Murdoch, but the desire to help others and a devotion to his hometown has kept him going through good times and bad.

    Now family, friends, fellow firefighters and distinguished guests from the extended Northland fire brigade community have celebrated Mr Murdochs remarkable achievement, which earnt him a double gold star, as a variety of awards were made to

    brigade members at the stations honours evening.

    On December 10, 1956, 18-year-old Gary, also affectionately known as Maggot, joined the brigade straight out of the army. Attracted to the military style with which the organisation is

    run and the comradeship, he went on to serve for 50 years apart from a nine-year break.

    They were hard men and the gear and trucks were very primitive, Mr Murdoch said of the early days.

    Riding for funds

    Surplus funds help brigade

    p It was a wet day at the sixth annual Pouto Horse Sports event held at Steve and Kath Nathans farm but organiser Kath said the competitors still had an action packed day. The event was sponsored by Tropex Exports who donate $5,000 for prize money including spot prizes and competitions like the best wheel stand and most persistence. We did have to cancel a few events for safety reasons but the hardiest of riders took to the arena and had a fantastic time, mud and all, said Kath

    p There were 697 riders in the sixth annual Tangiteroria school bike trail which was 35 kilometres long on the main track with a separate track for the junior riders and a small flat track for the littlies. Riders came in their droves from all over the place. It was a very successful day for the school and we are quite positive that the funds raised will be enough to finish the renovation of the school field project. This is very exciting for the children, said co-organiser Helen Dackers.

    p Former county and town clerk Trevor Donald presents Fire Brigade station officer Jason Campbell with a cheque made up of the remaining funds from the recent Hobson County and Dargaville Borough Council reunion. We chose to donate it to the Fire Brigade as a thank you for all the work they do, said Mr Donald. The money will be used to purchase operational equipment and Mr Campbell said the brigade are very grateful for donations like these. Without them we couldnt do what we do.

    Farmers quizFonterra candidatesCandidates for the Fonterra Board will face some tough questions from local farmers when the Director Candidate Roadshow is in Whangarei this Friday, November 13 at 10.30am.

    This year six candidates are vying for three seats on the board. They are Murray Beach, Greg Maughan, Blue Read, Nicola Shadbolt, Ashley Waugh, and John Wilson.

    The roadshow is a great opportunity for Fonterra farmers to meet, question and listen to the contenders for the co-ops top table before they cast their votes in the 2015 fonterra elections, said local shareholders councillor, Penny Smart.

    As shareholders we have a responsibility to understand governance and the qualities required of a Fonterra director, and to use this knowledge to elect to our board the candidates who have these attributes.

    The roadshow is one of the tools provided to shareholders and gives them a platform to ask the candidates some robust questions about their governance ability
